The raspberry (Rubus idaeus) bush is a familiar sight with its abundance of delicious berries.
However, it is not just the berries of this plant that are of use. The pale-green leaves of this bush have long been valued for their medicinal power by Native Americans, Europeans and both Ayurvedic and Chinese medical practitioners.
Childbirth - raspberry leaf is used during pregnancy because of the effect that it exerts on the hormones and uterus. It helps relax the uterus when it contracts during labour, assisting with a faster delivery of the baby, and to calm the pains experienced after the birth. However, it does not actually start labour or promote contractions.
Menstrual Cramps - can be used for the relief of painful menstrual cramps due to the positive effect raspberry leaf exerts on the uterine wall.
Fertility - raspberry leaf is a hormone balancer and helps to regulate and cleanse the blood of excess hormones and has been used as a reproductive tonic for both men and women.
Diarrhoea - the naturally high tannin content of raspberry leaf provides an effective treatment for diarrhoea or intestinal inflammation.
Fragrine - alkaloid known to help tone the muscles of the pelvic region, including the uterine muscle layer.
Tannins - act as an astringent, soothing inflammation and constricting the tissues of the intestines to prevent water loss.
Vitamins and Minerals - Vitamin C and vitamin E are present in large amounts as well as vitamin A and some
of the B complex. It is also a rich source of iron and manganese.
